How do I setup my POP3 email accounts in my Mail client (Outlook, Thunderbird)?
After you've created your POP3 account in Plesk (see previous QnA), you can set up the account in your preferred Mail Client, or you can read your Mail using the WebMail service which is part of every hosting account.
To set up your account in a Mail client such as out look, use the following settings :
Your Username is the full email address, including the domain name, of the account you created. E.g. email@example.com
Your Password is the password you entered when you created the account in Plesk
3. Incoming Mail server (POP3)
Your Incoming Mail server (POP3)is mail.domainname.com where domainname.com is your actual website domain name
4. Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP)
Your Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) is the same as your ISP's outgoing mail server. Use the same setting provided by your Internet service provider to avoid problems delivering email. Most Virus and SPAM conscious ISPs now require you to use their outgoing Mail server to help reduce the proliferation of viruses and eliminate SPAM.
